In France, open street toilets are being installed for the bravePictolic
Outdoor toilets in France are being adapted to the consequences of the pandemic by installing open cabins in the fresh air.
The coronavirus has led to an increase in demand for contactless toilets and other bathroom equipment. The closure of public toilets, as well as bars, cafes and other establishments with amenities means that people have nowhere to go to the toilet when they are outside their homes. In London, there are reports of desperate people who used bushes in parks.
In the photo below we see the Lapee women's toilet. Residents of the city of Rennes are already used to such booths, writes the publication Dezeen. This model was invented in 2019 by designers Gina Perrier and Alexander Egebjerg. Lapee toilets were originally designed for music festivals.
One Lapee toilet includes three cubicles without doors — its visitors are covered only by rounded partitions.
Interestingly, the visitor of such a toilet has only the lower part of the body covered. So you can relieve yourself and... breathe fresh air.
To go to the toilet, you need to climb the stairs. The step is needed so as not to be in a vulnerable position, squatting, and to remain approximately on the same level with standing people.
Although such a toilet can be used contactless, a sanitizer will definitely not be superfluous. For safety, the walls are regularly disinfected and cleaned.
How everything happens can be understood from this picture.
